Steampunk IRC is a simple web-based IRC client with Twitter integration. A user's browser connects to a server which maintains a persistent connection to an IRC server (similar to bouncers like ZNC) and relays messages between the browser and the IRC server. Users can easily see messages they missed while they were offline.
This project is highly experimental and the UI is quite preliminary.
git clone git://github.com/toolness/steampunk.git cd steampunk npm install npm test cp config.sample.json storage-data/config.json
config.json to taste. Note that the
audience parameter should be
set to the origin of your web server; this will be used for Persona
login, though you can also ignore this field if you only want to authenticate
using username/password authentication.
Type / to see a list of all available commands.
/login username password - Logs you into the server with the given username and password, which should be listed in
config.json. Your credentials are stored persistently in your browser; if you want to purge them, use /logout.
/join #channel - Joins you to #channel.
/twittername nick twittername - Associates the IRC user nick with the Twitter user twittername. This association is global for all users of the Steampunk server you're connected to.
#channel message - Broadcasts a message to #channel. You can abbreviate the channel name and the client will automatically send your message to the closest unique channel that you're joined to.
@username message - Sends a private message to username.
